hello. I am a 31-yr old woman who has always had beautiful thick healthy long hair, until 2 1/2 months ago. It all started in Feb of this year. I was starting a new job. I'd been laid off and looking for work for 7 months. When I finally got a new job, I was really nervous about transitioning back into the work-a-day routine. I was also in the process of moving from nyc to the suburbs. Starting the night before my first day on the new job, I could not sleep. I'd never been a good sleeper and had taken ambien as needed for the past 4-5 years. But this was different. I could not sleep AT ALL, for days at a stretch. So I when to a psychistrist who prescribed: zoloft, trazodone (at night for sleep) and klonopin (as needed). I started off taking the zoloft and trazodone, and only using the klonopin 2-3 times weekly when I felt most anxious at night. 3 weeks in I noticed I was losing more hairs than normal. I stopped the zoloft after just 3 weeks, but continued w the trazodone and klonpin since they were really helping me sleep well. After about another month, I was certain I was losing hair. So I stopped everything. Stopped the trazodone, and klonopin. THat was about 1 month ago. I have telogen effluvium as a result. I am losing 100+ hairs per day and I am so very distressed, and so very sad. I always used to wash my hair every day but now can only bear it every other and the days I do wash I lose over 100 in the shower alone. Does anyone have any advice, or success stories having stopped antidepressants and recovering from the hair loss?
